About This Class



welcome to my 31 days of skillshare courses for the digital course advent calendar for december!

we got a packed month ahead, 31 days, 31 courses, i'm busy making a few courses a day and uploading them in draft format ready for you each day.. . trust me, it's stressful but i guess i like the challenge!

today we look at. . .

  • why do we have so many formats and what the heck are codecs anyway?
  • software and hardware to turn you into a video wielding conversion ninja
  • html5 video in the cloud is your current flavour of the moment
  • planning for the future, what format is going to win. how can we be ready?

hopefully by the end of this very quick course you'll be ready to go and have the software you need to get encoding video today! :)

The content is interesting and useful, but the pace is too fast., also because of all the editing. I had to constantly pause and go back so that I would not miss key passages.
